Halle Berry says daughter Nahla 'prayed' for baby brother Maceo for over a year

By Gina DiFalco,

Halle Berry got pregnant with her 8-month-old son Maceo in her late 40’s, but the Oscar winner’s daughter, Nahla, prayed for a sibling every night for over a year before that.

Nahla, 6, is thrilled that she now has a brother but Berry admitted she just didn’t know how to explain to her that it might not have happened.

"I didn't have the heart to tell her 'mom's 47 and it might never happen,'" she said on Live! with Kelly and Michael, ABC News reports.

Berry also said Nahla is a great helper when it comes to her baby brother, saying, "Because she prayed for it, she’s ready. It's like her baby doll came to life."

The Extant star shared similar sentiments in 2012 during an appearance on The Wendy Williams Show.

“We pray to God, so sweet. She says, ‘God, please bring me a bunk bed and a baby sister.’ And I say, ‘I can do one of those things, I know for sure,” Berry said at the time. “The other one, we’ve got to keeppraying on.’ What do you say to her when she wants that and can’t understand why God’s taken so long?”

Berry had Nahla with her ex, Gabriel Aubry, and Maceo with her husband Olivier Martinez.
